The Woodies has been run by the Warner family for over 2 decades, with sons Simon, Jonathan and dad Peter – the ex-rugby player looking after the bar, leaving daughter Ann-Marie and mum Jilly-May taking care of the food. The pub also boasts 3 petanque teams and runs regular buses to “Fortress Welford Road” – Home of the Leicester Tigers.
Each weekday lunchtime there is a fine bar menu served, with offerings ranging from freshly cut sandwiches to heartier dishes – including homemade steak and kidney pie. In warm weather meals can be taken outside to the large landscaped garden. There's no food served in evenings or weekends – when the pub becomes perhaps even more popular for its liquid refreshment and lively conversation.
